When we turn the pages of history , Kollam shines as a capital city from where majority of present day Kerala was ruled , a diverse port town which had cordial trade relations with the Chinese , Venetians etc . Likewise every celebration in and around Kollam has to say volumes as how they have shaped the life of people in and around the back waters of Ashtamudi and the sea .

Which jalolsavam can claim such a relationship with the families and life of people living around in the area . Kallada Jalolsavam is not just a visual splendor for the tourists who come to awe at our rich heritage . The spirit is still in the veins of every man and woman from the shore of Ashtamudi who have gone abroad for reaping their dreams . They all come home not for Onam , but 28 days after Onam for the Kallada Jalolsavam .
